Travis Kelce was caught on camera delivering a classy message of commiseration to Bills quarterback Josh Allen after the Chiefs won a classic in Buffalo on Sunday night.
Kelce had enjoyed one of the great nights of his career, scoring two touchdowns to lead his side to a 27-24 victory, with girlfriend Taylor Swift and his brother Jason cheering him on from the stands.
But before making his way off the field to celebrate with his loved ones, Kelce made sure he showed his respect to the beaten rival.
He told Allen: ‘You know it’s all the love in the world baby. Love you brother. Helluva job getting here. That s*** is crazy that you got here.’
The lead changed an incredible five times on the night and a cold and snowy Highmark Stadium in Buffalo. Allen scored two touchdowns himself as the Bills team left everything on the field in the loss to last year’s Super Bowl winners.
Kelce’s first touchdown came in the second quarter to give the Chiefs a 13-10 lead and he scored moments into the beginning of the third, too.
Isiah Pacheco scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 4-yard run 40 seconds into the fourth quarter, the fifth lead change in the game.
Buffalo’s Tyler Bass was wide right on a 44-yard field goal attempt with 1:43 remaining, and Kansas City ran out the clock.
The Chiefs will no doubt toast a magnificent win but attention has to sharply turn to another huge game next weekend on the road against the Baltimore Ravens – the team many pick to go all the way and win the Super Bowl.
‘That’s a great team down there,’ said Kelce’s teammate Isiah Pacheco. ‘We’ve got to be tight as a whole but at Kansas City we head there as one.’
